-- Good news to start with -- I have gotten permission to get a whole new list of approved names done for 2010 and 2011, which means we will be able to have some new named characters in the story!

 

-- Plague tribe's element is ... iron. Yes, I know, that doesn't match their armor color, but there is a reason for that, which will get revealed in an upcoming mini-serial on BIONICLEstory.com called Sahmad's Tale.

 

-- Look for more info on the Psionics power on Monday, same place.

You just made my day, Greg. The fact that we'll still be getting new names for the story is even better; it really goes to show that Lego does care. ;)

 

Also, Iron for the Plague Tribe... interesting enough; looking forward to the story.

Iron is great, as is a new mini serial.

 

And I guess we should thank LEGO for allowing you the name list - that must cost them thousands of dollars. How many names are you allowed to pick?

Nuhrii -- We are going to all brainstorm a big list and send it to Legal and see how many we end up with. I am hoping to wind up with at least 30 names I can use.

That sounds marvellous. I wish you good luck. I hope you will go for a mixture of MU-sounding and Spherus-Magna-sounding names (or maybe even something new).

I would love it if Bink's preferred name for the new Rahkshi would make on that list to get sent to legal.

 

As really just a follower of the story anymore, I must say I'm quite pleased by these developments. ^_^

Yeah, that'd be great, Erebus. Xiirahk or Zirahk or what was it again? As far as I remember, Xiirahk was rejected, but what about Zirahk? If that's been rejected, too, maybe one of those thirty new names could be a Rahkshi of Heat Vision.

The name list thing is pretty awesome. Especially if you end up with a good amount of them. I'm actually quite pleased with how much LEGO is giving towards Bionicle even without the sets.

 

And iron as orange kinda works. I always thought of it as a gunmetal gray and dark red, myself.

Wait, what? I never said anything here today. You're confusing me with Electric Turahk. :P

Anyways, I am glad Iron was chosen. I too originally thought that was a great idea.

Also, one could say that rust from metal is orange.

This is just about the best news I've heard all day. Thanks for doing all this for us!

To be honest, i don`t like the idea of adding more characters. Yes, maybe just a few Great Beings, Agori, Glatorian and alike, but thirty new personalities? No thanks.

 

Iron. Interesting choice... so no Element Lord here, i guess.

 

And what is that with Psionics?

The names don't have to go to characters, they can be used for the names kanohi, locations, weapons, etc.

And are there for when they're necessary. That doesn't mean we'll have 30 new names to learn in 2 years. I'm pretty sure that Greg will use them as he always has done: when it makes sense to introduce them.

Iron makes sense. They are rust-coloured after all.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

 

Though I'd like to see dark-reddish and brown, possibly old-bronze-green in there, too.

If you guys are going to brainstorm ideas, why not make a forum? I'm certain you could get some awesome sounding and original names from all of us, and if the amount you can send is a problem you can just take the best.

 

And orange rust is awesome, but could we say they had another color before it became rusted? And maybe the bright rust is why the Agori think everyone in the tribe has the plague!

Sounds awesome.

 

I dig the Iron for the Plague Tribe. As for names, I love the idea of having at least 30 new names for the year, that will improve the story considerably.

 

Still not sure about Psionics for an element, but I suppose it works out in the long run.

Nice to have new names for next year. Got any ideas what you might use any of them for? Not asking you to tell us what those ideas are, but it'd be awesome to know that you've got some plans for new characters/masks/whatever in the works.

 

Also, when you say "mini-serial", do you mean it'll have fewer chapters than the usual serials? That's a cool concept if so.
